Overview
This course is aimed at staff within organisations who possess very little formal knowledge of personnel management but have a level of responsibility for it. The course is intended to raise awareness and understanding of the main areas of involvement.

The workshops are designed to be highly interactive using a combination of discussion, exercises and quizzes, examples of best practice and recent case law to help participants apply the techniques to their every-day work and problems.

It greatly enhances the relevance and understanding of the course if reference can be made to existing policies, procedures and problems experienced within the workplace.
